World Activated Carbon to 2016 - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

World demand for activated carbon will rise 10.3 percent annually through 2016 to 1.9 million metric tons. Gains will be driven mainly by more government controls on power plant and factory emissions in the US and China. India will surpass Germany to become the fourth largest market, behind Japan.

This study analyzes the 1.2 million metric ton global activated carbon industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by type (e.g., powdered, granular), application (liquid phase, gas phase), market (e.g., industrial, water treatment, food and beverage processing, motor vehicle, pharmaceutical and medical), world region and for 17 countries.

The study also evaluates company market share, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 31 industry participants, including Calgon Carbon, Norit and MeadWestvaco.
